Large numbers of a drab brown moth in our garden during the day drifting into our conservatory until rescued! Anyone else been invaded in Old Felixstowe?

Interested in your page on the Brown Tail isofar that it was always an East coast species. The population around where I live in the West has been on the increase this last 5 years hitting a max this year with the number of webs; could hit the news next spring!

Fantastic Resource, very useful for public enquiries on the status of moths in Suffolk. I hope all Suffolk wildlife could be added to sites like this.

Keep up the good work.

How did you separate Epinotia solandriana and E. brunnichiana (males & females)?

I found a privet hawk moth today in Holton near Halesworth. It was beautiful and enormous. It sat on my finger for several minutes fanning its wings. I have not seen one before - what a pleasure!

We live in Suffolk and saw a moth in our garden it was an Abraxas grossulariata - and we used your site to identify it. Your site was the best of many that we searched - because it is so well laid out. Thank you.

A great site because it is informative and simple to use with no clutter. I am sure it will be a big hit with moth enthusiasts everywhere.

You must have put in a very large amount of work to assemble all the info in this site - and all of us who now can view and use it can assure you it was well used time! I am very impressed, and will use this site a lot!

I have just had a detailed look at this site which I think is excellent. I particularly like the links and the fact that you can instantly go to more illustrations of the said species. Also, the ability to directly compare species is inspired and the historical background is a real bonus. Goodness knows the time you must have put into it all. Marvellous.
